Are You in the Special Ambassador Club? How About 4k Bonus Points That Count Toward Elite Status?

For a limited time IHG is offering 2,000 and 4,000 Bonus Points Packages for IHG Rewards Club Ambassadors in addition to base points at participating hotels.

Review the 4,000 Bonus Points offer page to see the participating hotels (Rate Code IKAM4). And see the 2,000 Bonus Points offer page featuring different hotels (Rate Code IKAM2).

You must sign in to your Ambassador account from either offer page to view hotel availability.

And don't forget, the bonus points you earn from any Bonus Points Package count towards earning and maintaining Elite status!

This bonus is not applicable to groups, cannot be used with other offers or special promotions, and the bonus points will only be offered on one room per member. No expiration date has been announced. And remember, we always suggest you read all the terms and conditions of any offer.

We value IHG Rewards Club points at .7 cents per point. Said another way, you should feel good about buying IHG points for that amount if you can and it’s also the minimum value we suggest you seek before redeeming points. To see why we value each IHG Rewards Club point at .7 cents, see our great Tip on the topic.

2,000 bonus points are worth about $14 and 4,000 points are worth about $28 at .7 cents per point. If the price difference between the Bonus Points Package rate and a more economical rate is more than $14 for 2,000 points or $28 for 4,000 points, we suggest you forgo the points and book a lower rate because you don’t want to pay a rate difference that is more than the points are worth!

While we all know IHG’s Perks and promotions are wonderful, we always suggest you review all of the rates at your desired hotel. There could be a more competitive rate than the Bonus Points Package rate and we want to make sure you don’t miss it! For direction on how to efficiently search for the most economical rates or best room packages, see our great Tip on this topic!

Bonus TRVLVIP Tip:

If you do not currently have Intercontinental Ambassador Status, we suggest you consider it! Ambassadors enjoy an annual free weekend night, 5,000 bonus points each stay, guaranteed upgrades, 4 p.m. check-out when available, a complimentary in-room movie each stay and many additional benefits!

You can buy Intercontinental Ambassador Status for $200 the first year and $150 each year thereafter. Or IHG Rewards Club members may also purchase membership for 32,000 IHG Reward points. This status is only valid at InterContinental hotels (including the Venetian and Palazzo in Las Vegas) but also gets you Gold Elite status across all the IHG brands AND InterContinental is IHG’s Luxury brand!

If you’d like more information, see our great Tip on Ambassador and Royal Ambassador Status! 

The Wrap-Up:

The 2,000 and 4,000 bonus points packages for Ambassadors are a good option to consider if the stay price makes sense. The fact that the points are IHG Rewards Club Elite qualifying is also a plus.

And if you are loyal to IHG, are not yet Gold Elite and like to stay at IHG’s most luxurious brand, we believe buying Ambassador Status is a great deal!
